Delhi nursery school admission: Here is important development
In an interaction with private school principals and management authorities of Delhi today, along with Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal informed the audience that the nursery school admission procedure will commence soon in the national Capital.
He directed to start the process of nursery admissions very soon.
Several members of the management and school principals under the banner of the Action Committee of Private Unaided Recognized Schools in Delhi were a part of the interaction held at the main auditorium in Delhi Secretariat today.
Kejriwal said: “Education is our top priority. That’s why we had allocated Rs 10,000 crore for education in our very first budget. It was unprecedented and unheard of. Delhi government is committed to work for the most fundamental needs of common people; hence we have worked to transform government schools and hospitals in Delhi. ”
Kejriwal said: “Getting quality education is a dream of every individual, irrespective of their economic background. Earlier, students from underprivileged backgrounds were not getting quality education. But our government has ensured that everyone gets the best possible education. Providing quality education to every student is our dream.”
Kejriwal said private schools in Delhi have been performing well for a long time. There are close to a hundred Delhi schools in the top 200 private schools in India. Our government has worked to transform the government schools in the last 5-6 years and has brought them at par with the private schools. Government schools and private schools are two arms of the Delhi education system and our government prioritises education reforms in private schools also.
Kejriwal said: “The Delhi model of COVID management was appreciated across the world because government hospitals and private hospitals worked together in close coordination. Similarly, government schools and private schools need to work together to create a world-class education system in Delhi. ”
He said he is in complete favour of autonomy to private schools. At the same time, the Delhi government would not allow any injustice to happen to our students and their parents.
Sisodia appreciated the efforts of schools in minimizing the learning loss during the pandemic. He said: “Without much preparation or training, teachers and school authorities worked to provide learning opportunities for our students. It is highly commendable.”
He said the Delhi government is working to develop the mindset of the students so that they become honest, emotionally sound, and professional. “We are working to create a world-class curriculum for the Delhi schools. Government and private schools need to work together on this to provide quality education to every child in Delhi.”
The Action Committee of Private Unaided Recognized Schools has more than 1000 schools as its members. During the pandemic, the committee has donated close to Rs 1.34 crores for the CM Relief Fund along with thousands of PPE kits and dry ration.
Kejriwal thanked the committee for their support and contribution. Secretary Education H Rajesh Prasad, Director Education Udit Prakash Rai, Consultant Private School Branch Yogesh Pratap Singh and President of Action Committee S K Bhattacharya were also present during the interaction.
